While weddings can happen any time of year—even in a snow storm as reported on the news this year!—late spring and early summer are traditionally the season of weddings. May, June and August are the three most popular months for weddings. The time of year when Old Man Winter finally relaxes his icy grip on the earth is naturally the season for new beginnings.
But something interesting happens to brides as they approach their new lives: they start looking back to old traditions. Maybe it stems from a desire to connect with the generations that have gone before us. Even our snow storm bride mentioned above was thrilled to be married in a snow storm because her parents’ wedding was accompanied by one just like it. And as couples are waiting longer to get married, and brides are older than in previous years, they come to the altar with a greater appreciation of things that have true value.
Some wedding gifts never go out of style; they’re just rediscovered year after year by gift-givers and fortunate recipients alike. Engraved silver and pewter heirloom-quality gifts such as wedding cups, trays, jewel boxes, and coffee and tea sets provide a daily reminder to the newlyweds not just of that life-changing event, but the generosity of treasured friends who chose to commemorate it with something timeless.
